Rudolph was a follower, who played originally with Hawthorn in the Victorian Football Association (VFA), but was also used in key positions. He appeared in seven finals over the course of his career, including the 1927 VFL Grand Final and 1928 Grand Final. Said to be an idol of club great Jack Dyer, Rudolph played both premiership deciders from centre half forward but Richmond didn't win either.
A Victorian interstate representative, Rudolph joined Oakleigh in 1929. He was a member of their inaugural VFA premiership teams in 1930 and 1931, as a centre half back in the latter. Rudolph was captain-coach of Coburg in 1934.
